13th day : Dry lips are starting to peal which is a good sign that its working rite ? im having to use a chapstick but could this be due to weather change ?

No other effects apart from Dry skin and dry lips.

ps . Im Dying for a Vodka Redbull! :doubt: i love to drink with my friends, which gets me down cause i cant drink on accutane. :eh:

oh well maybe 2 more months to go since i am only on a 3 month's course for now.

Sorry to burst your bubble, but there is no way you experienced your IB in week 1. You have to give Accutane time to get into your bloodstream. This is not going to go as fast as you want it to, trust me.

DAY 18

I used that cream last night and its worked like wonders! reduces the redness and I seem to be spotless, apart from the red marks where i had spots a few days ago. :)

So im going to stick with this cream

My Mood Today

In a good mood because of the cream that arrived yesterday and so far results seem to be good ;)

Even happier now cause just me and my gorgeous girlfriend are going out and i can go out actually half decent.

Side Effects

Dry skin , dry lips , (had muscle aches today and it made me think it could be the accutane because ive done no exercising or weight training in a while.)

im on 20mgs a day , is it usuall to feel muscle ache's or bone ache's around the 3rd week ?

Sorry i havnt been back in a while......

Month 2 , Day 1

I am the worst i have ever been :( having a second breakout or it could just be the 1st and the 1 before was only minor.

I have boils all on my jawline....i never get thm there. I have spots all over my cheeks which have gone very red and in the middle of my forehead (inbetween eyebrows)

When did everyone else start to see results?

Mood Today

Im really down today. I thought i was getting better and this explosion on my face has just really got me pissed off.

Effects

Slightly dry lips and dry face. Big Breakout. I want to feel effects and i want to see results!!!

They say stress causes acne :| ...................You wonder why we all get stressed :evil:

Now this is the correct time for your IB. Hate to say "I told you so"...

It's common to experience zits in places you never even thought about having them before 'tane. Try not to pick while your pores are purging themselves. You gotta get worse before you can get better!

sorry its been so long till i have replied.

Im on my 3rd month now of roaccutane and the side effects have kicked in. My lips are so crackedan sometimes i get bad pains in my knees and lower back. Im still on the same dosage of 20 mg a day. I thouht my skin was gettin alot better in the second month after my bad break out in the 1st month. I woke up yesterday morning and m coverd in zits in the most stupidest places on my face. I care about my looks and this seriously sucks having these big red bumbs on my cheek bones, tzone , and next to my lips. :mad:

i would like to ask a few questions.

Wat should i wash my face with whilst on accutane ?

What Moisteriser should i wear?

does it matter if i have missed a tablet?

When do you think i will see results?

thx
